I still have an account for another site of mine.
I'd really like to do the following...
Visitors that go to www.olddomain.com could be sent to www.othersite.com/olddomain/
Is something like this feasible? And if so, how?
I'm going to be changing the nameservers for the oldsite domain name to the currentsite.
I'm sorry if this is hard to understand, please ask me if you need more details or a better explanation.
One caveat, since you want to redirect to a specific path (/olddomain) which will in essence become the content of the olddomain.com you'll find that most of the redirection services consider that a premium service and may charge a fee that is higher than just hosting the domain with an ISP in the traditional way.
Check several redirect services out. I don't remember which one it was but there is one that doesn't have that problem. But I think you *might* have to use them as the registrar. It's been a while so I can't remember exactly, but one site I'm familiar with used a redirection service where only the domain name showed up at search engines. She had great rankings over with no duplicate problem at all; only the domain name showed up. They had several options available, one of which they called "cloaked redirection."
Clarification: is the domain you want to point it to regular hosting?
